Disc golf is a sport with a lot of history and some of the best players in the world. Many famous players have dominated the sport throughout history, but some are still active and are helping to advance the sport. Here is a list of some of the most popular disc golf players you should watch!
Despite being a construction worker and having a very modest background, Ken Climo dominated disc golf like no other. He won 12 world titles over a decade and was the top-ranked player for a long time. This is a very hard feat to accomplish, and it’s a great testament to the power of the game that Climo was able to achieve this incredibly high level of success in a sport that wasn’t as popular when he won his first world title back in 1990.
Whether it’s in his prime or not, Paul McBeth is one of the world’s most well-known disc golf players today. He has a huge following on social media and has even won several major events in the past few years. He is a popular face on the Disc Golf Pro Tour, which is the top professional circuit in the world.
Known as a 5x World Champion, she is another female pro that you should be keeping an eye out for! She’s one of the most consistent players in the game, and she is a very good putter. She also has a large fan base and was the highest-ranked woman in the world for a long time.
She is quite a young lady but a highly talented left-handed player. She is on the Disc Golf Pro Tour, and she’s currently sponsored by a company called Prodigy. At this young age, she already has a massive amount of press, and she hasn’t even been throwing plastic for very long (at least as far as the disc golf community is concerned).
In 2018, this trans woman became the first woman to win DGLO and the second Elite event in the United States. She is in her late 20s, but she’s a big name in the sport and is quickly making her way into the top 10 of the women’s divisions.
Originally from Valkeakoski, Finland, she’s one of the world’s most talented professional female disc golfers. She started playing in 2014 and has racked up some serious wins since then. She has won over 15 disc golf events and earned her first PGDA world championship in 2014.
This is the only woman on this list that is actually from Finland! She has been playing disc golf for over three years and has racked up more than 33 victories. She’s not a professional but has much experience in the disc golf community and has already earned her first PGDA World Championship.
